Booked this as a short break with my girlfriend. Had no idea it was a gay hotel / bar in the thick of the action. Didn't bother us at all but it did make us chuckle. Didn't drink in the bar downstairs and only mingled when it was time for the fry up the next day in breakfast area, which... More

So, reading some of the comments on here, I get the impression that many don't realise that this hotel is on the world-famous Canal Street and somehow feel cheated, well, they need to engage brain before mouthing off... You stay in a hotel above a club on a weekend night, you are bound to suffer from loud noise and the... More

I booked a night here for me and my girlfriend. We needed something cheap and in the city centre. After I booked it I came on here, read the reviews and was dreading it. I expected hell. Instead, what we got was a hotel (not a hostel like some reviews claim), in a good location, at a cracking price We... More

I must start of by saying that my standards are generally not high when staying in hotels and B&Bs; just give me a clean room with running water and I'm a happy customer. Unfortunately this "hotel" was the worst place I have ever stayed in, at times I was tempted to go and sleep in my car. We booked two... More

OK people, i have seen some scathingly bad reviews of this hotel and feel that they are unfair. Yes it was renovated in 2011 and the carpets and paintwork are now a bit worn. BUT £45 for a room AND a cooked breakfast right in the heart of Manchester and right on the lovely canal. Staff are very friendly and... More

Slap bang in the middle of the gay village, the REM is definitely a winner for this. The room was very nice, clean, dark colour themed, and pleasant. Shared facilities but this didn't really bother me or my boyfriend at all. Breakfast was really nice too, cooked full English :) I'd recommend if you can get it for the right... More

Very poor room. Very cheap but windows broke, bits falling off wall, holes in curtains. Terrible mattress on bed with springs popping out. Dirty carpet. Was not told on booking that is was an all male bar below and had to try get in to get a key. This should be more clear

I wasn't expecting much being a pub hotel but it was dire. This must be your last choice in Manchester. The sheets were clean but everything else needed cleaning or renewing. The shower had one broken door ( and that was it), the carpet was threadbare, the cups were dirty, the window was dirty and only opened a tiny bit... More

We stayed here one day right after the Christmas. We had booked it in advance, but we didn't know that it was located in gay village. The hotel and room decorated in very gay style. It was cold inside and too loud until 2 am because of the club on the ground floor.
